I first did a one photograph HDR in Photomatix with this shot and then converted it in Silver Efex.

SABBATICAL - For personal reasons, I am taking a sabbatical from Aminus 3, effective immediately. I have photographs in the system to post through March 18. I wish you joy in your personal and photographic journeys.

All the elements are there for a superb image! The smoke of the train rounding the bend and the rich vegetation! Luminous and perfect!

Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

A wonderful image. A powerful machine, the 19th, I remember perfectly! out of the turn. Some of his body still can not see well. The steam goes for his "whiskers" and the fireplace hard. A tranparent on the forest. the visual impact is provided by a magnificent job in B & W! Fabulous image my friend! Congratulations master Jack!
Muchos besos, Adela

Not 100% convinced on the HDR work, but the scene itself and framing are magnificent and packed with detail.

Enjoy your sabbatical and take as long a time as you need; I now limit my online time to one and a half hours maximum per day. What a huge difference it makes! Enjoy.

Great image and you caught the train perfectly. Contrasty B-W works well here.

Stéphane Thémèze from PlateFormeRonde, United States

It looks kind of cool the way the smoke kinda mimic the herd of pine trees and kinda blend in and also the thickness of it on top of the frame which makes it looks like heavy sky. A nice effect to witness. Neat framing and vibrant black & white rendition.
